 (Refiles to fix table formatting)
    NEW DELHI, Sept 10 (Reuters) - India imported about 4.7 million barrels per day (bpd) of oil
in August, up nearly 16 percent from the same month last year, according to data from shipping
and industry sources.
    Iraq regained its status as top oil supplier to India, reclaiming the lead from Saudi
Arabia, which had ousted Iraq the previous month.
    India, the world's third-biggest oil consumer, cut imports from Iran in August by a third
from July as the federal government delayed permission to state refiners to use Tehran's tankers
and insurance for oil purchases.
    Supplies from Saudi Arabia, Iraq and Iran made up nearly half of India's overall imports in
August.
    The Middle East share of India's total oil imports rose marginally in August from July,
while that of African grades, led by lower shipments of Nigerian oil, declined to 13 percent
from about 18.5 percent. South American grades were about 15.8 percent of India's overall
purchases, compared with 13.5 percent in July, the data showed.
    The following table shows India's imports by country. The imports include condensate.
Volumes are in '000 bpd.

 NOTE: The total may not tally as numbers in tonnes have been rounded off after converting them
into barrels using a conversion factor of 7.3 barrels per tonne and dividing by the number of
days. Numbers for the previous months may have been revised.     
The data includes some oil tankers that arrived in July but discharged in August. It may also
include some parcels that arrived in August and discharged in July.
